in three build and so the money will come together but it's the loss of the historic have break that is going to leave a lasting pain. serving not only to generate sympathy across europe. but. something of a rallying call for the european project to this actually have a positive boost moving towards the european parliamentary elections next month it's difficult to say brand because you don't know how in event like this that is so emotional and will play out really it is difficult to sort of true in this into something that you can work who is that you can sort of you know how can you turn the burning down the national symbol often entre dime in the heart of paris. to too far to the future and sort of turning turning the fate of
people in europe so that is very difficult the messaging that will have to come out of this and at the moment everybody is still sort of occupied was digesting what happened here and the sort of a lot of raw emotion here tonight people watching this and of silence for hours and sort of people really being sort of gripped by this spectacle and so the future we'll see in a few days. how the french media and politicians will sort of deal with that. as we've been saying for the people of france today it is much more they can see it is part of their identity. and they should take a look. parts of what we are an essential part of paris is in peril that was the reaction of many in france is the fire took hold they looked on incredulous as the flames engulfed notre dame. for the french people not to dom is more than just
a cathedral it's the heart of paris a landmark alongside the eiffel tower a magnet for millions of visitors a year notre dame stands on the internet cité in the middle of the river saying it's france's most famous catholic money meant dating right back to the middle ages . suring the french revolution many of the cathedrals treasures were plundered in a chino for it was the venue for napoleon's coronation as the emperor of france. eight hundred thirty one so the publication of the famous novel the hunchback of notre dumb by victor hugo it was a huge success and brought the cathedral new attention. now in twenty nineteen the unthinkable has happened the flames consuming not to dam cathedral taking with them centuries of history. lots of history let's talk about the future
the sun's going to come up it's going to be the day after this tragedy what is paris going to do with that you know bomber was talking about the mayor is going to have to deal with the political boy back for what the response. by the fire department for example well there will be a lot to answer for indeed these forty five min is do they between the moment the fire broke and the first intervention of firefighters it's something that one cannot fathom in a capital city like paris where we supposed to have five fighters who are trained for that kind of situations and we know that after the terrorist attacks that took place in paris they weren't those exercises of in fact creation and five fighters must have been involved. then we know it as the exercises that took place in the time so why did they take so alone tonight there was this state of emergency after the terror attack it would have had to you know right so there would have been time
to prepare for all kinds of disasters but those exercises together by firefighters to police the emergency services were done in light of the terrorist attacks but they like it people who are even more urgency services can intervene in such situations why couldn't they intervene to not and that's that's something that the mayor of paris. will have to answer for as soon as tomorrow why did that response was delayed response was delayed the the money for the rehabilitation wasn't there to begin with that may have spiritus all of this if it had been there in the first place i mean we don't know what caused this fire and it's very hard to prove a negative but we do know that that the people behind supporting this cathedral supporting us renovation supporting its upkeep have been struggling for years for decades even to get the necessary funding to keep this thousand year old
cathedral going the french state only provides two and a half million dollars a year for its just basic upkeep and maintenance it promised a few years ago to double that of five million dollars over the next decade as part of this twenty year long renovation projects and it's not it's not for pretty things it's for essential infrastructure support of this to keep this massive massive piece of architecture functioning and stable and secure the supporters of the renovation project rest i mean this could cost up to one hundred eighty million dollars of before the fire now we have to wait for investigators to tell us what this might cost as as we said french billionaire paino has pledged one hundred million euro sounds like a lot of money but we really don't know what we're dealing with until investigators can get in there and see what they have. and of course you know it was just dealing with the fire scene an active fire scene. when you look at. what do you see there do you see a place of worship or do you see an icon for your home country that's that symbol
of france an icon and not a place of work shape of worship i mean a lot of people in friends are not believers say they do not belong to any church and yet they are affected tonight and outpolled by what is happening because not a dime is a symbol for france and it has been so for centuries now it's part of our history it's a vibe to friendship oh they're showing that it's a vibe to world war one and world war two without being bombed and he was one of the few cathedrals in france which had never suffered from a fire it's actually something that used to be very come on in the medieval times and the other night and perrier but. i was as if by miracle i'm not i'm have never suffered any plight such as the wanting to enter tonights you that's a very good point barbara what have you been hearing in paris tonight it's about
what six percent of the french attend church regularly this is not a society with a high level of religiosity what have people been saying to you what do they see when they look at notre dame. yes but they still feel heartbroken i mean it is still a very emotional event and that is because it is just so symbolic for france it is just somehow a sign for the long gadgety off the french nation reaching back to middle ages being one of the most stable countries in europe that was sort of invaded by armies but that was never completely overrun or torn apart and that somehow always managed to sort of form and go for reform and go forward and sort of stay french throughout a very long time and it is that historic that deep history connection that french
people have to their country to the soil and to the to the main cities of fragments that that makes for the response that is what has been very emotional tonight here people really speaking about being being hunted broke and being very emotional and very touched by the spectacle and and southpaw it something horrible happening in front of their eyes that everybody you look at it and you think you would want to stop it and people were very quiet here on the bridges around the not saddam cathedral and watching this with this sort of very somber mood and it did touch people it's not so much they really are religious side but it is the last off the often historical symbol off the rootedness of france in its own past and we could you know hear the sirens in the background there where you are and as we
approach the day break into tuesday morning on the normal you know late monday night early tuesday morning there would be a lot going on even in a city like paris on the streets but tonight it's a completely different picture or isn't. yes police has largely blocked off the sane islands and order so too for emergency vehicles to get through firefighters moving back and forth and to just sort of keep traffic away from here and people have slowly been dispersing they've been out here for hours this group on the bridge here which is still singing religious him very low voices but the other people have slowly drifted home they have seen what they had come to see and everybody left sort of in a sad mood so it is affecting the city this was this is going to take a long time to get away and all the talk about rebuilding it's not bloody easy you
can't really bring something back that has been there for a thousand years and that gets almost destroyed within a few hours that seems to be an ominous sign a sign for things not going well for france and so many people will feel this is a sort of negative omen. you know. do you feel that way you know it certainly feels like it's the and of a part of this if it is a show we do know if you toby and they got to negative oh i will see the future will tell us in any case it is a very sad day for friends for french people they've lost one of their one on one piece of their cultural heritage and it's something that we're that's the damage in my name across presidency a bit further because it happens under he's men date even though like i say the lack of funding that we were talking about before didn't happen only. under his
mandate is this the result of drastic politic in terms of cultural heritage that has been trying to go to the positive and it looked a lot worse earlier in the evening when i mean it for a while we were looking at a complete destruction of this cathedral the towers or risk of collapsing they saved them we also know that nobody died yes very important nobody died this happened after that the tours were closed mr gage was closed for the day there was one seriously injured firefighter was reported we'll hear more about him or her later perhaps and i think it's a very humbling moment for for people everywhere we i think we get lured into the sense of safety in our modern life that we have all this technology and modern political theory available to us to solve all of our issues and for for something so rudimentary as fire it reminds us that we are all very much at the when the
nature of these things can still happen that's a very good for us a good point to close on him and of course barbara in paris to all of you thank you very much the day is almost over the conversation continues online if i just on twitter either at g.w. news or you can follow me a break for you to use the hash tag the day we are going to leave you now with images of that fire at. if you drill in paris every member whatever happens between now and then tomorrow is another day we'll see you than a. block . to. block.
house the view of the world. where i come from but all of that's good to cisco just like most chinese food doesn't matter where i am there's a risk reminds me of home after decades of living in germany chinese food is one of the things i miss the most but better taking a step back i see things a little of difference minolta many of ford's president are going to asia and that includes the are the heart of the lord haven't been implemented in china that's new
but i'm not a child of people wondering if they're going to save it but if i have a ride to learn to read it is this is their job a job that of them on how i see it and others why enough of my job because i tried to do it exactly it is out. de. my name is on the truth and i work at it up here. and on demand. language courses. video or. w. . and german live w. at any time any place using news media novellas yeah i look like
a little scratch almost to sing along to you is to come from super. for. interactive exercises. everything is online and interactive learn german for free with d. w. . this is deja news africa coming up in the next fifteen minutes days off to omar al bashir has people in sudan are still protesting there demanding civilian rule we look at the passion of military intervention in unseating africa's dictators what does it mean for democracy. and one month off a psycho need to i were on the ground with the mayor of mozambique sports city off a rough way if it's to clean up and rebuild are under way.
i'm christine wonderwall come to deja vu news africa i'm glad you did we begin in sudan where days off to omar al bashir is all stuff people are still protesting the country's military rulers off facing pressure from demonstrators. western governments to had power to end new civilian government bashir ruled sudan with an iron fist for thirty years before he was finally overthrown by the military last week off to mass protests that have rocked the country since december. they have been here since the sixth of april and they're not ready to give up protestors have encircled the defense ministry the intelligence headquarters and the presidential residence in the tool they want to civilian government not their knowledge sake of the military command council isn't enough on friday the former right hand off also
the president of the shia defense minister i want moment even though wolf stepped down as the head of the transitional council after only one day as head of state. and two days later on sunday the army finally in the once away statement of a possible transition to civilian government whatever. we want from you and we wish that everybody reaches an agreement in a short period of time we need to find an agree on an independent and a national figure to become prime minister. no timeline given no names in the ring the role of the army remains unclear instead the appointment of another military figure to keep position. from what i did of renounce the appointment of a new intelligence chief. booker. on
monday five thousand people blocked an attempt by the army to break up of the protest camp outside the defense ministry this after the army brought in tricked us to move the barricades. the fall off a mob if she is the latest in a wave of changes sweeping away many off africa's longest serving rule is just days before bashir was pushed out of office abilities bush defeat off algeria was ousted off to weeks of protests the military eventually turned on the eighty two year old and he was forced to resign after nearly two decades in power before which if eco was zimbabwe's robert mugabe who was removed from office in twenty seventeen off to thirty four years the difference here is there were no protests at least not the kind we've seen in algeria and so done but it's the military was instrumental in helping the faction of mugabe's party that profit his alstom now among africa's
remaining long serving leaders all paul b.-a of cameroon the eighty six year old one who lost his presidential election with and with thirty seven years in office is currently the longest ruling non royal dida in the world uganda's un was seventy trails not too far behind at thirty three guinness in office now my guest today wrote an opinion piece he titled africa extinction of the dinosaurs in the article published in all africa dumisani malaya sais it's the end of an era for african dictators the journalist and political commentator joins me now from zimbabwe's capital. welcome to africa mr. we've seen a pass in here of military intervention. in terms of these long ruling leaders and you've written that elections in many countries in africa are a mere charade so for the countries that are still holding these long ruling
leaders are protests and then military intervention looking like the only way change can come about in these countries. it is the phenomena of military intervention in this country is in this african countries as we have seen in there in zimbabwe in algeria in the sudan it's fundamentally a product of a failed electoral process is failed to look for systems. of people have been given so many opportunities to vote and tried to express themselves and they should change in their countries those systems failed them and as a result you see in the intervention of the military in. algeria in zimbabwe before that and now in sudan is primarily because the person who sees the electoral process is not sleazy to maids they are made
a shari and the people when they fail to free the expression of those processes they end up tuning up with the military in order to effect change ok but you sort of alluded in that opinion piece you sort of the lids to teaming up with the military to bar you would see as as an unconstitutional removal of the dictators and then you say that that makes the transition from dictatorship to democracy complicated are you saying that that's what we've seen in algeria and sudan and what is the prospect of democracy for these countries. yeah it makes it very complicated because when the military gets involved in the politics to begin with it's undemocratic it's unconstitutional although it is desirable because most of these people are in forces with the military to overthrow dictator as they would have been tying the electoral process is in failing they would have been appreciated and failed leadership and they failed economic polices for a long time so they end up. in the process of teaming up with the military you
create a new problem because when you overthrow the constitution you overthrow the dictator has now you face a new challenge of how do you see him from victory. the democrats are. different democratic institutions when they get involved in politics they will do things the way they nor best which is the way and the way these months is to go for the present be the zimbabwe. that are made by two heavily militarized that is why you're having a very difficult transition because the military is so it's not a democratic institution they would really want to ensure democratic procedure remember in the first place they involved primarily because they wanted to solve a. problem. with their position right and indeed to be. so they were not in the first place to democratize the process so there is experience of the need to use because of the real reason why they were involved in the first
place which was to present themselves preserved ok i want to get to my other question here and that is in this piece that i'm referencing you talk about now being this full of dictators this is this is the end of the era you say and i'm i'm wondering why you use your so adamant up now being the time given the fact that we've seen dictators in other countries for libya for example why you adamant about now being the time. now it does become the time for dictators orderly watch because there's a new dynamic that is great in one day the new dynamic is people power if you could just see if you wanted to break through the arab spring you saw a wave of uprisings in north africa into the middle east the people are taking the power into the on on his to confront the details so one of them i'm in egypt who was a long serving dictator i was invited he was overthrown during that period and we
also saw the same situation happening in tunisia so when people begin to feel that they can be able to effect a change through uprisings through the streets the politics of the streets about them there will be violence but to introduce a new dynamic in that many people dynamic was playing itself out in zimbabwe algeria and also don so it is clear that we now have different kinds of politics a brand of kind of pull it was playing offices in africa and the budget is written in dictators are crossed because i was maybe remain in power. journalist and political commentator. from how that is about we thank you. it's a month since. the south east africa the storm killed more than one thousand people in mozambique and malawi hundreds of people are still missing as a result of the severe flooding that hit the region the world bank estimates that three million people are still suffering the ofter effects off the natural disaster one of the worst affected places was the port city of beirut it was
a meek correspondent. with the may of a a man who is fighting a daily battle to overcome the emergency left by the storm and for his city. every day dovish the mongo does a two of his city inspecting the reconstruction of bear with the destruction of saigon the di still visible everywhere the mayor is determined to stay in close contact with the residents and the man who is trying hearts but he can't always help the mayor is part of an opposition party after the cyclon he strongly criticized the central government for its slow response the city's annual budget is only about thirteen million viewers it was real very difficult we went heating heating heating today understood that the needs. we need they need us we need them we need everybody that's why i spoke to the got us i spoke to the center and i told
them that we need to join forces and i'm happy that. by now eight organisations active all over town the water supply has been restored some parts of the city have electricity again but there are also setbacks the number of malaria cases is on the rice and despite massive minnie's ations mozambique has reported to more than three thousand five hundred color cases maybe a c. man who needs eight workers in an improvised hospital i am gets an update on the situation and wants to know how he can help you have to talk to the people sensitized i mean you have to tell them how to avoid color they have to boil their drinking water the doctors working here there's still wiring because there's still some cases coming in and we need to stop it. we don't know we are going to do that the most is about to myself and my team to be on the ground talking to the people advising. the academy to do i'm sure that we are going to stop it. the next
problems i waiting so see monger is hitting the road again full of optimism and drive despite the difficult situation i feel a challenge i fear a child. here. i feel god's something has to be god and i feel there's a problem because someone has to do something. so i feel great so i feel. there's a better than most choices will face yeah this is out of the eyes of business or the joys of my god the first child is when we were going to produce a smugglers next week plan and i want a conference in may he wants to collect more aids money for the reconstruction of his city so the people of prayer i can livea once again like they did before cyclon he died. and that is it from the news africa you can catch well story on out web site and facebook page we leave you now with images off a pretty old jazz festival which finished at the weekend in cape it bison out. to

unlikely. welcome to do. it's good to have you with us we begin in indonesia which is headed to the polls on wednesday in what has been called the most complicated ballot in global history and here's why i don't do one hundred ninety two million indonesians have to vote in five separate elections ranging from the presidential and parliamentary to provincial and local this would happen across the country with more than seventeen thousand islands spread across three time zones and if that isn't challenging enough there are about two hundred forty five thousand candidates in total in the running all this on one day but the headline contest will be
between these two men got it president dawdle and former military general brabo voice will be until they faced off against each other in the last election in twenty fourteen as well and. election. won by a whisker but this time round the stakes are even higher and campaigning ended on the weekend has been crucial chaotic and creative. elvis presley indonesian style but instead of classic rock n roll this version prefers islam infused beats. the popular local music dang dude is here to drum up support for candidates in the upcoming election. when there's music we come alive and there are also islamic clerics preaching.
yeah she's a supporter of travel to be until the former son in law of indonesia's then dictator. sitting a nationalist and populist tone the retired military general banks on the support of conservative voters. his rival djoko we'd otoh if finesse more of them order it the incumbent seeking a second term as president to carry on with the reforms he promised five years ago . with heavy metal music he wishes to capture the hearts of young voters which he says is crucial to win the poll. a third of indonesia's one hundred ninety million voters a millennial among them five million will be first time voters like angelica she hopes to choose a government that cares about the welfare of the people. may believe but i'm not as
a first time voter i feel happy and proud that now my voice can help determine the future of this country it's my duty as a good citizen. other voters care about the religious tolerance that was once taken for granted in the majority muslim country buddhist leader and diesel want to hopes religion can be kept out of indonesian politics despite the rise of hard line political islam in recent years. do not use religion as a political tool we should be actively involved in ensuring harmony among followers of different religions. but no matter how diverse the country is there something many indonesians share their desire for a better future and the love for music. let's get more graphic indonesian service he's in jakarta to cover the elections it's good to see you know it's a complicated enough election as it is but what are the cute shoes here. well there
are three key issues to watch in this election in egypt namely own democratic future because of the defies if campaign strategy human rights violation and also economy get the latest being the most important ones for the voters china has become a contentious issue for for this because for many indonesians and chinese involvement in their own economy is hugely unpopular but unluckily for both candidates. whoever wins this election will be dependent on china's chinese vestment to boost the economy growth because indonesia is not an easy country to infest specially for many westerners because of the infrastructure and also do massive corruption problems and so far china is the only big investors who are reeling to manage those risks in terms of managing these risks into egypt because at the current president
your cover dawdle has been balancing it well somewhat because infrastructure has to have been one of the things that he's been preaching to his voters is that's something that is going to stand him in good stead. well the president jokingly to try to put infrastructure policy or his infrastructure policy on the center office agenda as a big achievement of their hero his government but. human rights activists. say that this policy also has also created many human rights for rhaetian especially online the positions just simply too many problems for them to call their infrastructure policy to be a big achievement. and we still see many environmental activists being arrested for example and it's right to. focus indigent and get indigenous. rights for
indigenous people against big mining companies for example and they say it's one change in the next five years whoever reinstate election. no to indonesia is also the world's largest most a majority country besides being the third most populous democracy how important is the islamist thorn that political rhetoric has increasingly taken in indonesia in these elections. well it also it's created. a hostile environment especially for minorities for a special far as you get i people when i talk to them this state whoever wins the election you are the big loser because. both candidates will not risk their own future political future for them and in fact. the international say it since two thousand and sixteen indonesia has experience more persistent acts of intimidation and marginalization against people such as public shaming for example right and let
them leave it there for the time being from out in the nation service speaking to us from jakarta thank you very much thank you. from the wilds thud most populous democracy to the most populous which is also holding elections india where any of its one point five billion citizens who are over the age of twenty five and don't have a criminal record and run for office that enjoys a host of candidates entering the elections with little to no chance of winning. a veteran candidate on the campaign trail here in the city of mature new product. is running for office again it's the seventeenth time that the holy man has been on the ballot of state and national level. i think contesting since one nine hundred seventy six he predicted that i'd win my twentieth election . long road in politics has been
a test of faith. in india candidates fulford they were just ration fee if they perform badly policy to discourage no hopers. he's lost his deposit every single time but he knows that he's day is coming soon. never lose my twentieth election it's a challenge but i'll never lose it it would be a stain on my reputation i will win and it will be. all reached the parliament even if i'm on the stretcher or a funeral pyre. guy. to a tea stall in delhi where one man is making a bid from beyond the grave. meet the candidate known as the dead man. is officially listed as deceased the victim he says of a scam. in my life. thank you saying once these debts
record set straight so he's contesting prime minister modi's own seat environ nazi . fighting against the system trying to hold a mirror to the system. i don't worry about winning or losing. but at least people will know that the man is running against a popular leader prime minister narendra modi. he knows he has little chance of success but like thousands of candidates he too hopes for a voice in indian politics in this life or the next. everyone but me watches it and on sunday sees an eight. game of thrones is back on t.v. and with it one of its most well known face is peter dinklage who plays t.v. and lannister a widely nobleman but now fans of the show have spotted an uncanny lookalike
